Title Relative Feed Value and Relative Forage Quality in Forage
Authors ┼×erafettin KAYA
Abstract Relative Feed Value (RFV) and Relative Forage Quality (RFQ) which is revision of RFV, used for forage evaluation when forages is fed as the sole source of energy and protein. The calculated value of RFV=100 is an indicator of a forage quality that can be equated to alfalfa at full bloom. The RFV index uses NDF and ADF as a predictors of forage quality. RFQ index is similar to RFV except NDF digestibility is used. NDF digestibility allows for a more precise estimate of the energy in the feed.
Keywords Forage, quality, index.
